AWP Proceeds With Effort to Take San Diego’s Pump Station

The agency managing the East County Advanced Water Purification program took another step toward legally confiscating a sewage pumping station that now belongs to the city of San Diego.

Earlier this month, the Joint Powers Authority for AWP filed a complaint in San Diego Superior Court asking the court to grant the JPA eminent domain rights for the station, located at the western border of Santee, on Mission Gorge Road next to the west-bound ramp for SR 52.
